In what amounts to an act of public service, Transaction Publishers continues to publish Edwin Newman’s Strictly Speaking (1974) in a large print edition. The book is entertaining and instructive in the vein of such classics as George Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language” and Mark Twain’s “Fenimore Cooper’s Literary Offenses.” Newman ridicules clichés, euphemisms, incorrect usage, pseudo-scientific terminology, and turgid political speech while providing a fascinating introduction to politics in the United States during the seventies.
